Friday 6 February will bring travel writer Nick Hunt to our campus to discuss his book “Walking the Woods and the Water”. For those who would like to attend the event will take place in Room 232 of the Rutherford McCowan Building and will begin at 4pm.
‘In 1933, Patrick Leigh Fermor set out in a pair of hobnailed boots to chance and charm his way across Europe, ‘like a tramp, a pilgrim or a wandering scholar’, from the Hook of Holland to Istanbul. Seventy-eight years later, Nick Hunt followed in his footsteps. His book recounts a seven-month walk through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Turkey on a quest to discover what remains of hospitality, kindness to strangers, freedom, wildness, adventure and the deeper currents of myth and story that still flow beneath Europe’s surface.’
This is a free event but places are limited, please book here
